New Application-Focused Tags for HTML5

New tags allow developers to build applications directly within HTML5, instead of using silverlight, flash..etc. I’ll probably have no idea how to use these tags.

  • <meter>: A scalar measurement within a known range, or a fractional value; for example disk usage, the relevance of a query result, or the fraction of a voting population to have selected a particular candidate. This is also known as a gauge.
  • <progress>: Represents the completion progress of a task. The progress is either indeterminate, indicating that progress is being made but that it is not clear how much more work remains to be done before the task is complete, or the progress is a number in the range zero to a maximum, giving the fraction of work that has so far been completed.
  • <time>: Represents either a time on a 24 hour clock, or a precise date in the proleptic Gregorian calendar, optionally with a time and a time-zone offset. This element is intended as a way to encode modern dates and times in a machine-readable way so that, for example, user agents can offer to add birthday reminders or scheduled events to the user’s calendar. For data feeds, pub datee.
  • <details>: Represents a disclosure widget from which the user can obtain additional information or controls. Not widely supported yet.
  • <command>: Represents a command that the user can invoke.
  • <menu>: represents a list of commands.
